Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), says he has not decided to run for president.

On Friday, some groups purchased the presidential nomination form of the APC for the CBN governor, asking him to join the 2023 presidential race.

But on Saturday, Emefiele said he has not taken the decision to run for president in 2023.

He said this in a series of tweets on Twitter.


The CBN governor said the decision is not easy to take and would require God’s divine intervention.

He added that God would direct him in his decision “within the next few days”.

“I am humbled by the growing interest of those asking that I run for the Office of President in the 2023 general elections: I have not come to that decision,” his tweet reads.


“I note and salute the sacrifices of those farmers and patriots going as far as raising personal funds and offering me Presidential Nomination Forms: I thank them most profusely.

“However, Should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms, without proxies in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“And should I not run for elected office, I will continue to serve and sacrifice for the good people of Nigeria under the able leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“This is a serious decision that requires God’s Divine intervention: in the next few days The Almighty will so direct.”
